Organizers of the 2022 World Cup distanced themselves Tuesday from allegations of corruption involving two former high-ranking FIFA officials that raised new questions about Qatars winning bid for the tournament. Air Jordan 1 Ireland . The Daily Telegraph newspaper in Britain alleged Tuesday it has evidence that former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner of Trinidad and Tobago and his family were paid almost $2 million from a company controlled by Mohamed Bin Hammam, a Qatari who used to be an executive committee member of world footballs governing body. According to documents seen by the newspaper, a note from one of Warners companies, Jamad, to Bin Hammams firm, Kemco, requested $1.2 million for work carried out between 2005 and 2010. The note was dated Dec. 15, 2010, two weeks after Qatar was awarded the World Cup. The payment was made in 2011. Payments totalling $750,000 were paid to Warners sons and a further $400,000 to one of his employees, the Telegraph alleged. The transactions were processed via a bank in New York and have come to the attention of the FBI, which the newspaper alleged is investigating Warner and his links to the Qatar bid. Qatari organizers said Tuesday their bid "strictly adhered to FIFAs bidding regulations in compliance with their code of ethics." "The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy and the individuals involved in the 2022 Bid Committee are unaware of any allegations surrounding business dealings between private individuals," the statement said. Warner said a "witch hunt" was being waged against Qatar. "I have no interest in joining in the foolishness that is now passing as news on Qatar and Jack Warner," he said in a statement to Britains Press Association. FIFA said it had no comment on the allegations. "In principle, any evidence of potential wrongdoing can be submitted to the investigatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee of FIFA for further investigation," it said in a statement. The latest allegations will bring fresh scrutiny on the 2010 vote, which currently is under investigation by FIFAs independent ethics prosecutor, and has put Warner and Bin Hammam -- two of the most controversial figures in FIFAs recent history -- back in the spotlight. Warner and Bin Hammam are no longer FIFA members. They were caught up in a corruption scandal surrounding Bin Hammams failed campaign for the FIFA presidency in 2011. Qatar defeated bids from the United States, Japan, South Korea and Australia to host the World Cup, allowing FIFA to take the 2022 tournament to a new country. The decision has been marred by persistent allegations that the voting process was flawed as well as concerns over the sweltering summer heat in the tiny Gulf nation, where temperatures can hit 120 degrees F (49 C). FIFA is expected to move the tournament from its traditional June-July period to the winter months, with the exact dates yet to be finalized. Concerns have also been raised about the working conditions, poor living standards and non-payment of wages for people helping to build the stadiums for the World Cup. As then-president of the CONCACAF regional body, which includes the U.S. Soccer Federation, Warner would have been expected to lead efforts within FIFAs ruling board to help the American bid win the 2022 contest. Qatar defeated the American bid 14-8 in the final round of secret balloting by 22 FIFA board members. Two of the then 24-man board were suspended after being implicated in a cash-for-votes sting by British newspaper The Sunday Times. Warner resigned from football duties, including his 28-year membership of FIFAs board, in June 2011 to avoid investigation in a bribery scandal linked to Bin Hammams campaign for FIFA president. The Qatari official launched his challenge against FIFA President Sepp Blatter three months after helping his country secure the World Cup. Bin Hammam withdrew his presidential candidacy just days before the vote after being suspended by FIFAs ethics committee. He was implicated in offering Caribbean football federations $40,000 each in cash at a May 2011 campaign meeting organized by Warner in Trinidad. The World Cup bid contests for the 2018 and 2022 tournaments are being investigated by Michael Garcia, a former U.S. Attorney who was appointed as FIFAs independent ethics prosecutor in July 2012. Garcia and his investigation team have been conducting interviews worldwide with officials from the 2018-2022 bid nations and FIFA executive committee members. Russia is to host the 2018 World Cup. Garcia is expected to submit a report later this year to FIFAs independent ethics judge, Joachim Eckert, who can recommend possible sanctions. Blatter has said the World Cup cannot be taken away from Qatar or Russia. AP Sports Writer Graham Dunbar in Zurich contributed to this report Air Jordan 1 Ireland Online .

DeGrom outpitched Jake Peavy in a tantalizing hitless duel that carried into the seventh inning Saturday night before the New York Mets broke loose and beat the San Francisco Giants 4-2. ROME -- Francesco Totti scored the opener and Roma went on to beat Udinese 3-2 Monday to maintain its three-point lead over Napoli in the race for Italys last direct Champions League spot. Third-place Napoli had won earlier, with Gonzalo Higuain scoring a controversial goal in the 90th minute of a 1-0 victory at Torino. The top two finishers in Serie A gain direct entry to the Champions League, while the third-place finisher goes into the last playoff round. Napoli beat Roma 1-0 last weekend, although Roma beat its southern rival 2-0 in October and so holds the head-to-head edge. Roma also has a game in hand. "We need to keep this pace until the end of the season," said Totti, who scored off a rebound from the centre of the area in the 22nd. It was Tottis sixth goal in 16 appearances this season and the 233rd of his Serie A career, second only to record-holder Silvio Piolas 274. The 37-year-old Roma Totti had been out for a month due to a minor injury. Mattia Destro added another for Roma in the 30th, dribbling by the goalkeeper and shooting into an empty net after collecting a pass from Gervinho. Giampaolo Pinzi pulled onne back for Udinese in the 51st with a long, angled shot and then Romas Greece defender Vasilis Torosidis restored the two-goal lead in the 69th with a long left-footed effort that appeared to surprise the defence -- perhaps because Torosidis usually favours his right foot, and is not known for his shooting skills.

In Turin, Higuain appeared to foul Torino defender Kamil Glik with a push outside the area after collecting a long pass from Marek Hamsik then dribbled in to score with an angled shot that Torino goalkeeper Daniele Padelli got his hands on and could have done better to stop. "I dont know if it was a foul," Higuain said. "It was a quick play." It was Higuains 14th goal this season, after transferring from Real Madrid in July, moving him one behind Juventus Carlos Tevez for the Serie A scoring lead. Napoli had rarely threatened for most of the match, and Torinos Cesare Bovo and Riccardo Meggiorini hit the post either side of halftime. Torino, which has lost five of its last six matches, remained 10th.
